    A PROMISE For ALL WHO ARE CALLED

    by David Wilkerson


    God gave the prophet Jeremiah a word to speak to Israel: "Thus

    says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: `Behold, I will bring on

    this city and on all her towns all the doom that I have pronounced

    against it, because they have stiffened their necks that they might

    not hear My wordsī" (Jeremiah 19:15). Jeremiahīs words so

    incensed the chief governor of the temple that he was bound and

    tortured. Yet, in spite of his suffering, Jeremiah never doubted his

    calling. He knew he had been given a word from God.


    God went on to say to Jeremiah, "I planned a ministry for you

    and you are to build up my church. I want you to plant seeds

    of my good news, so donīt worry; Iīll give you every word to

    speak just when you need it. And donīt ever be afraid of men

    or fear failure. Remember, as long as you live, I am with you.

    Do not be discouraged but rise up in faith and do as I have

    commanded you. You have one divine purpose and that is to

    speak my mind" (see Jeremiah 1:9-17).


    Jeremiah tells us, "The Lord put forth His hand and touched

    my mouth, and the Lord said to me: `Behold, I have put My

    words in your mouthī" (1:9). What an incredible moment in

    this manīs life. How wonderful to know that God has put his

    hand on you, revealed his thoughts, and anointed you to speak

    for him. Then God added this word: "Do not be dismayed before

    their faces, lest I dismay you before them" (1:17).


    Beloved, this is Godīs message to every Christian who has

    ever been called by him. He is telling us, "Donīt let anyone

    break you down! You have no reason to be confused or

    despairing. I have told you I am with you and there is no reason

    for burnout, no cause to quit. No matter what hardships you

    face or how badly people treat you, I have put mighty pillars

    around you and I am with you to deliver you!"
